Abstract

The effect of genotype and litter size on pre-weaning and post weaning body weight and linear body measurements of rabbits was observed using two breeds of rabbits-Dutch belted (Dutch) (DUT) and New Zealand White (NZW) rabbits. Four genetic groups were generated from the two breeds namely: (DUT X...

AbstractFull Text

The study investigated heterosis effects for early growth performance using three popular breeds of rabbits in Nigeria (Chinchilla, New Zealand White and Dutchbreeds). Thirty six (36) sexually mature rabbits belonging to three genetic groups (Twelve per breed at the mating ratio of three males to...

Abstract

Soon after lambing, body weight of 1715 Nali, Soviet Merino (SM) × Nali, Corriedale × Nali, SM × (Corriedale × Nali) and Corriedale × (SM × Nali) ewes averaged 26.2, 27.1, 26.4, 29.9 and 26.6 kg resp. Lamb birth weight increased with increasing dam body weight, ranging from 1.89 kg for lambs from...

Abstract

Mortality data on 5163 Romney × Suffolk lambs were collected from 1976 to 1981. Mortality from birth to tailing (25 days) for single, twin and triplet births was 14.1, 14.7 and 33.0% with mean birthweights of 5.2, 4.1 and 3.3 kg, respectively. Within 72 h of birth 94% of all deaths occurred....

Abstract

Duroc, Yorkshire and Duroc × Yorkshire pigs (1328 litters in 7 generations) were typed for 11 blood groups systems. Segregation ratios for blood group genotypes were not generally significantly different from expected ratios in either sex; for the H system, however, the ratio of...

Abstract

Data on preweaning growth traits were analysed for 4034 calves born and 3732 calves weaned in 2nd and later parities from contemporary populations of F1 dams maintained at 2 locations (Brandon and Manyberries). The calves were sired by Chiana, Charolais, Limousin and Simmental bulls mated to cows...

Abstract

Data are tabulated for 20 bulls used at the Yambol Breeding Station. Age at 1st calving, body weight, and milk, milk fat and milk protein production in the 1st lactations of their daughters (20/bull) was considered. For the whole population, the h2s of milk fat production, milk fat percentage, and...

Abstract

Data on 322 purebred and crossbred Friesian calves (7/8, 15/16, 31/32, 63/64 and 127/128 Friesian), born during 1969-1976, were analysed. Genotype significantly affected weight at 1 and 2 mth of age, av. daily gain decreasing as the proportion of Friesian inheritance increased. Country of birth of...
